Infanticide by males and its implications /

"In this book, case studies and reviews confirm the adaptive nature of infanticide in males in primates and other animals, and help to predict which species should be vulnerable to it. Much of the book is devoted to exploring the evolutionary consequences of the threat of infanticide by males f...
